The Moreno Valley College is fast becoming the health education center of choice in the Inland Empire with strong programs in health sciences, human, and public services. Each semester, more than 14,000 students pursue associate's degrees, transfer to a four-year college or university, or a career certificate that qualifies them to enter their chosen field.
MVC offers instruction at two sites, a main campus located in the city of Moreno Valley and an off-campus site, the Ben Clark Training Center, located approximately 11 miles from the main campus.
RCCD began serving the Moreno Valley community by offering classes at March Air Force Base and Moreno Valley High School. The number of courses expanded with the community's population and in October 1985 the Robert C. Warmington Company donated 112 acres for the construction of a college in Moreno Valley. This philanthropic act was motivated by the company's vision that having a college close to the homes that it intended to build would make those homes more attractive to potential buyers. In 1989, RCCD purchased 20 additional acres. Construction began in the same year and MVC officially opened in 1991 when four buildings were completed: the Library, the Student Services Building, the Science and Technology Building, and the student center.
MVC became a fully accredited college in 2010, making it the 111th California Community College. MVC has grown from serving 3,490 students in the College's first semester to an annual enrollment of over 14,000 students as of the fall 2017 semester.
MVC is RCCD's designated center for health sciences and public safety programs, which are offered in partnership with entities such as the Riverside County Regional Medical Center, the Riverside County Sheriff's Department and California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection.
MVC offers 54 academic programs, employs more than 585 people, and distributes over $660,000 in financial aid to students every year.
